If Samuel was German - or more likely Jewish (Sarah) the name is unlikely to be Greeno. I would guess it might have originally Gruenau (or first "u" with two little dots over it). An anglicisation could easily be Greeno but it would not be much use to look for that in any German records. Hope this helps.
